Copenhagen, June 20, 2016 – TRIOS®, 3Shape’s digital color impression solution, is now integrated with Insignia™ Advanced Smile Design ™, a sophisticated computer-designed treatment planning and custom-fabricated appliance software system by Ormco, a manufacturer and provider of advanced orthodontic technology and services. The integration will take affect from today June 20, 2016.
The time-saving workflow integration enables orthodontists to send TRIOS intraoral scans with just a click to Ormco for the planning and delivery of its Insignia bracket treatment system.
For orthodontists using TRIOS, the integration eliminates the steps of having to either take an analog PVS impression or manually upload a large and bulky intraoral scan file to a server.
Now they can just choose Insignia from their 3Shape Communicate™ account to submit the case and send the TRIOS digital color impression file to Ormco, who then uses the intraoral scan to create its customized digital orthodontic treatments. With a keen focus on the orthodontist and their clinical needs, Insignia has been recently updated to include enhanced custom TIB tubes with reduced profiles and increased bond strength. To offer orthodontists better, more accurate tracking and planning information, Insignia also offers dynamic case tracking.
“3Shape constantly seeks new ways to increase TRIOS value for our customers,” says Allan Junge Hyldal, Vice President 3Shape Orthodontics. “The collaboration with Ormco makes it possible for doctors to take advantage of the unique strengths of our respective products as well as offer their patients more choices for orthodontic treatments.”
